Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

I see many cottages where I live because we live only a block from the beach and I’ve never felt more connected with cottages than I do right now. Cottages are always a special treat to see or to visit. The more “rustic” and the more “original” one is, the more charming I find it to be. I love them and if they’re filled with vintage pieces, I think they become even more attractive. Sure, we can find gorgeous mansions by the sea, I’ve even posted many of them on this blog, but there’s something really special about a simple cottage. They’re a place you leave everything behind and just come and enjoy life for a few days, weeks, or if you’re lucky, the whole summer.

This cottage grabbed my attention because I can picture any family having a great time in this space. It feels really comfortable but unpretentious. Not luxurious but you have everything you need, and who needs that much when you have the ocean just steps away, right?

Cottage Sweet Cottage

A place to build memories of many summers.

Cozy & Comfy

The furniture tells it all: “You’re in a cottage. Just relax…”

Light Suppers

A big table offers space for the whole family and all your friends. That’s what a cottage is all about, right? Everyone is welcome.

Just a Little

Wouldn’t it be really pleasant to spend some time in this room? It feels so bright and beautiful.

Read & Nap

This vintage daybed adds some comfort and charm. Perfect for a little siesta.

Room To Roar

A very spacious room, especially when it comes to a cottage.


Isn’t it beautiful?


I love how bright this whole space feels.

Master Bedroom

Perfect for a place by the beach. Gorgeous lamps.

Sea View

Do you need much when you have this kind of view?


The amazing view from the master bedroom.


Small in size, but huge in charm.

Guest Bedroom

Very sweet bedroom, and this bed looks great in this space.


Bring some fun into your life.


A place to eat, chat or play some card games with friends and family.

The Beach

A wonderful place to be and feel the warm breeze from the ocean… and feel that life is good!

Did you enjoy your weekend? I had a fantastic weekend with my kids and husband. My son just turned 6 on Saturday and we spent the day at the zoo. It was really fun and we all have a wonderful time together. I just feel so grateful to see my kids growing and being happy. Nothing makes me happier than being with my family, having a great and peaceful day with them.

Oh, about feeling nauseous because of my pregnancy, I finally figured out what was making me feel that way. It was the extra folic acid the doctor recommended. So, now I’m taking it just before I go to bed and guess what? I feel just fine the next day, without all that bad feeling and tiredness. I’m feeling much better. 🙂

Have a Blessed week, my friends!

    Love it, I would LOVE to vacation somewhere like this – I like that it’s not perfect and cold, but so welcoming – thanks for sharing Luciane! Besos!

  2. The enchanted home said,

    This is the just the kind of cottage I love. I could pack up my car, my family and my dog and head there for the summer and be happy there all summer long. Perfect for casual get togethers with family and friends but not too big or high maintenance..perfectly cozy and light and airy..great little beach house, Luciane!!

    Luciane: First of all, CONGRATULATIONS on your pregnancy! I must have missed some posts where you originally shared the news, due to my being without my laptop in the past couple of months and wasn’t oneline. Second, Happy Birthday to your son! I remember my son being six years old and it’s a great age. Third, GREAT post. Many people/blogs post “beach” houses and I say, “Oh, pretty.” But THIS post? This is the best beach house I have seen and the first one that I am saying, “Man, I wish I had THIS house.”
    Again, congrats on your good news of your preganancy!

    I actually remembered the “special day” before I read this post! But thanks for another reminder. lol Look for an email from me.
    Am now getting ready to head to bed, and will dream of this special oceanside place. It won’t be long before I am in the land of cottages, ocean breezes, and some of my favorite people….you and yours included. 🙂

    This home is so airy and bright ….and welcoming! I was feeling serene until I saw that board shack, SEXY.

    And congratulations on celebrating birthdays and pregnancy! There is no better job than being a mama.

    Glad you’re feeling better!
    A day at the zoo, isn’t that wonderful?
    Cottage is one of my fave styles. One day, I will have one at the beach…

    Have a lovely week, my friend.

  13. Nichole@40daysof said,

    I love this cottage. I want to go stay there right now!

  14. Jano said,

    What an emminently livable place! Unlike many styled homes, this one looks like you wouldn’t be afraid to move in its confines. I admire the way the closet/bookshelf combo is built out into the bedroom. Adding the woodwork at the top that duplicates the pitch of the ceiling makes it look cohesive rathern than like a tacked up afterthought the way some closets added to old homes do.

    Hi Luciane – you know how I dream of a beach house so this is my kind of post. Love the warm, relaxed, and cozy feel of the cottage and the views…stunning!! So happy you are feeling better and had a great birthday weekend for you son. Happy Monday!!

  16. Kristin said,

    I never thought it would look so gorgeous in the inside…
    The facade looks so simple,
    but the interiors are so gorgeous.
